Welcome Sweet Baby Card

Good morning! Today my card is for a sweet friend, Glora, from Glora's Crafts. She and her family welcomed a baby boy a few weeks ago. I knew it was going to be a boy and made this during release week but waited to post this card until they had the baby. I couldn't help but use Emma's, from My Creative Time new release. I LOVE this release!!! Her stamps and dies were just perfect for this card!  So funny that I am posting this today because Glora is filling in for Emma today!

As you can see the clouds, plane and banner are ALL from the My Creative Time June release. I wanted to make my clouds look a little whimsy, so I just placed them randomly. They remind me of Cumulus clouds . I also decided not to make all of my clouds white  ~ so I made some of them off white. For my little plane I knew I wanted to add a propeller so I took a brad and glued it to the front. My little windows I just paper pieced them in white to add a little dimension. I also added some hemp from my plane to the banner! The sentiment is from "All Star Baby" stamp set. I pop dotted the banner too for more dimension. I added this ribbon I saw from my local craft store ~ I knew it would be perfect for this release and card. Simple and easy but CUTE to welcome a baby Beardall!
